Now that was a weekend of shake ups, surprises and question marks. Outside of the Nesy, UMass Boston surprised Colby and put a scare in Bowdoin.

Bowdoin looks like the team to beat. They were a little surprised with UMass B but then came out against perennially strong Babson and put on a licking.

Williams also claimed first week dominance putting on a show against CC and then blanking Tufts.

Tufts came into game 2 of the weekend with confidence after upending preseason fave Middlebury. Middlebury will regroup after taking a thorough whooping this weekend. Their game against CC has fans calling for scalps but kudos to CC for a good rebound and going 1:1 prior to Thanksgiving.

Trinity got surprised and lost two, Hamilton on Friday who upset and maybe surprised the Bantams and Amherst on Saturday. Amherst looks dominant going 2:0. Watching the game at Wesleyan on Friday, they will be a significant force in the Nesy. Brock is a stud.

Wesleyan's game on Saturday was a surprise to watch. The cardinals could mount no offense on Friday but put up 3 to beat Hamilton. Hamilton dominated the offensive side outshooting the cardinals unofficially but put up no rebound shots. The Wesleyan power play put up two. Hamilton who shocked Trinity fell to 1:1.

When is the last time Bowdoin didn't look like the team to beat in the NESCAC in November and December ;)

They start out strong every year and then choke at the end.

Truer words never spoken. Can we avoid the fate of past seasons? A long way to go, but I believe this team has the makings of a top rank goalkeeper, in Messina, and the firepower to overcome past disappointments. We'll see...

I believe the last time Middlebury started the year with two losses like that was back in 1993-1994 when they got trounced by Bowdoin and Colby and went on to miss the ECAC East playoffs (that was before NESCAC had its own tournament).

Beaney answered that by bringing in thirteen freshmen the next year en route to his first of five straight national championships in a row. Current Panthers players better beware...
